  • Sick of your kids looking at screens for hours on end? It seems TVs, phones, tablets and computers, is the only way they experience life these days.

    Take a moment to find out about 4 of many unique kid-friendly activities in down-to-earth Marrickville - they say a lot about what it’s like to grow up in this iconic suburb.

    One: For Art’s Sake: Getting messy at the Sydney Creative Playground.

    There’s nothing preschoolers love more than expressing and covering themselves in paint in the process. This drop-in centre is filled with plenty of art supplies and volunteers to guide, not instruct. And for art’s sake, mess is good but not in your home.
